A label featuring Santa Claus for Sugar Plums by the U.S. Confection Company, New York, in 1868.

The label was entered into the Clerk's Office in the district of Southern New York. It's an interesting use of Santa for advertising in the mid 1800's. The image is familiar but has changed somewhat since then!
